Bluegrass artist Billy Strings releases "Taking Water" from upcoming sophomore album

Billy Strings has released "Taking Water", his first single from his upcoming sophomore album HOME, set to come out on September 27th. While Michigan-born Strings' acoustic-heavy sound remains undeniably bluegrass -- complete with accompaniment from the banjo, fiddles, and bass -- he finds ways to add in hints of punk, ambient, and psych rock to his tunes. It results in a gripping country sound that makes a song like "Taking Water" a breathtaking listen. Strings will hit the road this month on a nationwide tour supporting the release of HOME; catch him in Nashville when he returns for a show on September 11th at Americanafest. Take a listen to "Taking Water" below. - Will Sisskind





King Corduroy drops music video for Americana track "Workin' for a Livin"

Americana artist King Corduroy will release his new EP Avalon Ave. on August 16th; to preview the drop, he's released the single "Workin' for a Livin", along with its music video. A little rootsy and swampy, "Workin' for a Livin" mixes a little Texas blues and Southern rock with sounds from the Mississippi Delta and New Orleans' French Quarter. For the better part of the past decade, King Corduroy has written songs that reflect the world around him, and "Workin' for a Livin" helps to tell the stories of people doing whatever it takes to get by in the somewhat unstable world we live in today. Take a look at the music video for the single, which features little clips of people on the job doing what they can to survive. - Will Sisskind





07.19: Them Fixes bring electric buzz to Springwater Supper Club

Buzzworthy alt-rockers Them Fixes will bring their electric music to Springwater Supper Club on July 19th to support the release of their debut EP Electric Prophetic. The duo of Dustin Rye and Shawn Jones formed in 2017, and throughout the next year they cut their teeth blasting out the speakers of Nashville's many bars and venues. Electric Prophetic contains four tracks, including previously released singles "Fangs" and "Kill The Nights"; every track hits the compression hard with guitars and drums that pound against your ears. It reflects the kind of energy that Them Fixes want to channel through their music; sometimes even the best headphones can't handle it. If you want to get the real effect, go see Them Fixes live at Springwater Supper Club on July 19th, where they'll share the stage with The Stone Eye, Ape Vermin, and Blacklight Velvets. Take a listen to the band's second single "Kill The Nights" below. - Will Sisskind

Watch: Ian Ferguson releases DIY video for new psych single "Love Crime"

Southern psych-rock songwriter Ian Ferguson has released the new groovy single "Love Crime", along with its music video. The track -- which appears on Ferguson's upcoming debut album State of Gold (out on July 26th) -- channels a bit of The Beatles' late discography, or even the more chilled-out ideas of Black Sabbath. A more contemporary comparison would be Mac DeMarco, perhaps, as the music video for the song has a bit of DeMarco's knack for lo-fi and DIY production values. The Handicam-looking clip comes rife with low-budget aliens in cardboard triangle glasses, an old van, and old sci-fi film footage. It doesn't take much to make a fun video, and Ferguson holds fast to that ethos with the clip for "Love Crime". Watch it below, and watch out for State of Gold which drops later this month. - Will Sisskind

07.06: The High Tides open for The Constellations at The End

Fans of the lo-fi hip-hop tinged indie sound of Mac Demarco or Anderson .Paak will enjoy the tunes of The High Tides, one of Nashville's new up-and-coming indie groups, led by Aaron Diebold, Aeris Hennings, Xavier Bond, and Jackson Weippert. The High Tides' blend of R&B and pop fits right in with the increasingly hot dog days of summer; their new album Thanks For Nothing, which came out in May, has a handful of tracks to cool you down, including the soothing opener "My Perspective" which you can listen to below. The High Tides will open a bill headlined by Atlanta-based hip-hop/rock band The Constellations at The End on July 6th. Recover from your holiday hangover, then go check them out. - Will Sisskind
